Storyline

This is independent life: Year One. Meet Danny, a new university 'fresher' who just wants to cut his past loose and get on with his life. However, he's about to get an earth-shattering blast from the past in the form of Shane, his outrageous 'slacker' mate from school. Shane was the 'worst best friend ever'. Blagging his way into last minute clearing, Shane proceeds to gatecrash Danny's entire uni existence and ransack his best-laid plans. Danny and Shane have been friends for as long as they can remember. As they embark on their university adventures, can their friendship withstand the test? Will they even manage to make it to the end of term alive? Sharing the flat with our hapless heroes are the feisty Scarlet and the permanently morose Fred - who has misanthropy down to an art. Fresh Series One sees them muddling through bad dates, worse parties, social mishaps, financial disasters, political coups... and all the other trials and tribulations of life as a fresher.

So awful its almost impressive
19 September 2009 | by nickcotton-1See all my reviews

Pretty much everything about this show is wrong, and it completely misses the mark. My house mates at university and I have talked about how much potential a student sitcom could have, but this fails on all fronts. The first day of university is a scary time, and everyone can empathise with the fear of being embarrassed by a parent in front of everyone, so the very first scene worked, but from there it was downhill. The real thrill of living in a flat for the first time away from home is based on the fact that you don't know anybody else, and you can be who you want to be, so sticking 2 best friends in the same flat means that the mark has been missed there. Instead of going out to parties, club nights, etc, it seems all these guys are doing is going to lectures on human rights. That's not how I celebrated freedom. All of the characters are one-dimensional, all the jokes are predictable, and I don't remember any of the characters getting particularly drunk at any point.

One thing that can be said for the show, is that you do feel empathy with the characters. When the ginger's being annoying, you feel annoyed; any time Jay from The Inbetweeners speaks, you groan just like the other characters.

Watch Undeclared instead. A much better show.
